Covid-19 Prevention

Please note that the information and policies cited below may change. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to protect our clients, families, and staff from Covid-19.

Covid-19 Vaccinations

Patients are encouraged to receive the Covid-19 vaccination prior to admission, however vaccination is not required at this time. Skyland Trail may choose to require vaccination for continued patient enrollment at any time based on changing public health recommendations.

Pre-admission Screening

On the day of admission, clients complete a screening for Covid-19 that may include an antigen Covid-19 test. If, at the discretion of the Skyland Trail medical team, a Covid-19 test is administered and is positive, the client will be required to return home. They must quarantine and receive medical clearance to reschedule the admission appointment.


Masks are optional at this time.

Skyland Trail may choose to require mask wearing for individuals or the entire Skyland Trail community at any time. Individuals may choose to wear masks if they prefer. Individuals who are immunocompromised should consult their physicians. Masks worn by adolescent clients may not contain a wire or metal strip. Masks are required in the following circumstances:

  • Close Contact Exposure: If an employee or client who has received the booster vaccine has a close contact exposure and is not experiencing symptoms, they can come to campus but must wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.
  • At the discretion of the Skyland Trail medical team: While following infection control protocols, the Skyland Trail medical team may require that certain individuals wear a mask while on campus for a period of time.
